Seashell Collage (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card made using one of my old favourite stamp sets, Seashell Collage.. I envy the seagulls the beautiful view, it's definitely been perfect weather to enjoy the seaside.


I began by stamping and masking the focal image before creating the sea using a brayer that had been inked and rolled over crumpled paper. I removed the mask, coloured the images with my Graph'it markers and then inked in the sky using a mask. To create the impression of the posts through the water, just extend the colouring a little using slightly softer shades of brown.
I stamped the sentiment using archival ink and added some string and some embellishments that I d stamped and coloured.  The edges were inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and I've popped the topped on a kraft card blank.

  3. A beautiful scene Claire and I love the way you have framed it with the piece of poetry one side and the anchor, ship's wheel and shells the other.
